Did you know that there are certain things you should look for in a tube of toothpaste? Well, it’s true! Before you pick a tube of toothpaste from the oral hygiene isle at the store, make sure it has the following:
Approval from the American Dental Association
If you want trustworthy toothpaste, make sure you pick one that has been approved by the ADA. If it has the ADA Seal of Approval, it means that the paste has undergone vigorous testing that ensures safety and effectiveness.
Minerals are added to and taken from your smile each day, and sometimes more minerals are taken away than those that are added, which makes your smile vulnerable to decay. If you brush your teeth with fluoride toothpaste every morning and every night, those minerals are added back to your smile and your teeth are protected. Fluoride toothpaste also strengthens your enamel and removes the plaque from your teeth, which prevents gum disease and tooth decay in the long run.
Preferred taste and comfort
If you have sensitive teeth, it is best to choose toothpaste that cleans your smile and gives you the comfort you deserve while doing so. It is also recommended to pick toothpaste that has a delicious flavor, like mint, cinnamon, and bubble gum. This is not because we encourage you to eat the toothpaste (please refrain from doing so); it’s because the flavors leave behind a refreshing feeling and taste that gives you the clean and flavorful sensation that makes brushing worthwhile.
If you wish to brighten your smile, you can choose a paste that whitens and enhances your teeth. There are many successful pastes that do so—just make sure you use one that whitens as well as nourishes, strengthens, and cleans your pearly whites.
